I do not have a Schitt Freya, but I have had a lot of active preamps. I am now using a buffer preamp which includes two solid state buffers and a tube buffer. I kind of agree with the other responses in the sense that (you can switch between them on the fly), the tube buffer does not create a "tube" sound. The soundstages are different, and the sound (forward vs behind the speakers) is different, and some bass impact is different, but when I go from SS to tube, no one has ever said "ahh, that must be the tube circuit" or "aha, we went from tube to ss". It is a very interesting experiment.

I like the buffer better than most active preamps I have owned.

I linked to a post about my preamp below.
